During the week of May 15-21, we invite teams to choose an area of our community and use their kits to collect garbage in our already beautiful community of Transcona. Bags of garbage can be dropped off in the blue Waste Connections bin next to the stage at Transcona Centennial Square during that week.
In addition, Transcona BIZ wants to see how you’ll be taking part! Make sure to use the hashtag #TransconaCleanUp on your clean up photos to be entered to win a prize pack valued at $200! Draw will take place May 24th, 2022.
We know the residents of Transcona have a great sense of pride that has helped continue our reputation as the Park City! With an abundance of caution due to the ongoing COVID-19 virus, we recommend smaller teams and maintaining the 6-foot distance as per Manitoba Public Health guidelines. We are looking forward to seeing the community come together to spruce Transcona up for Spring!
A huge thank you to Take Pride Winnipeg and Recycle Everywhere for their donation of gloves and garbage bags for our clean up kits.
Every spring since 2015, the Transcona BIZ partners with upwards of 3,500 locals from business sponsors, students of Transcona schools, community groups and members to clean up Transcona. Scouring the streets and parks for garbage has drastically improved our ranking – Transcona went from being last on Take Pride Winnipeg’s Litter Index (dirtiest community) in 2015, to the cleanest community in Winnipeg in 2017! Support from our community has grown over the years, with our 2019 event being the largest community clean-up in the City of Winnipeg! As a thank you, our hard-working volunteers are treated to a free BBQ and concert at the Transcona Centennial Square.
Our summer students were able to collect over 60 bags of garbage in the Transcona area, and we had numerous community groups who collected countless bags to add to the total. We would like to extend a great big thank you to our many volunteers, Presenting Sponsor The Chamois Car Wash and Detail Centre, and Gold Sponsor Councillor Shawn Nason for taking part in our 2020 Annual Community Clean-Up.
